Each year we offer residency positions on a competitive basis.  Interviews are made through the application process using PASS, we do not participate in MATCH.  Selection is made on the basis of academic performance, experience and extracurricular activities, recommendation and personal interview.

As far as application requirements, we do not require the ADAT yet. All requirements are standardized according to what is listed under PASS. Applicants must have graduated from an ADA accredited School of Dentistry by June 1 or have completed/received certification/diploma for at least one year of an ADA accredited Advanced Dental Education program in order to comply with licensure requirements for temporary or permanent licensure by the Virginia Board of Dentistry.

For information on house staff benefits, credentialing requirements, and other important information, please visit the UVA Graduate Medical Education web site.
